Donald Trump’s campaign has imploded in the past week as multiple clips of him making lewd comments about women have surfaced.
Many of these clips have stemmed from interviews on the raunch Howard Stern Show, leading many to pressure the radio show’s host to replay all of his interviews with Trump. Howard Stern, however, isn’t having any of it.
Daily Caller reported that Stern spoke out to slam the mainstream media for digging up old quotes Trump made during his interviews with Stern because he believes they were within with the show’s normal fare.
“These conversations that I had with Donald Trump weren’t done in private like the Billy Bush tapes,” Stern said during his show on Monday. “This was on the radio. Why don’t I play all the tapes? I have to tell you why — I feel Donald Trump did the show in an effort to be entertaining and have fun with us, and I feel like it would be a betrayal to any of our guests if I sat there and played them now where people are attacking him.”
“I fully knew what I was doing when I interviewed Trump,” he continued. “I knew I had a guy who loved to talk about sex. I had a guy who loved to evaluate women on a scale of 1-10. These are avenues I went down because I knew it would entertain the audience.”
“I wasn’t imagining that I would be in the middle of this election and literally so prominently mentioned,” Stern added, referring to the current presidential election. “Quite frankly, as someone just said, I’m surprised they didn’t find these earlier. There’s nothing to find. As the guy said, they were right there in the open.”
Stern went on to talk about how shocked he was when Trump told him he would be running for president.
“I said, ‘Why are you doing this?’ Why would a guy with billions of dollars [run for president]? Don’t you know what they’re gonna do to you? Don’t you know they’re gonna open up everything?” the radio host recounted. “A lot of the show that I’ve been doing for my entire life, radio show publicly, is an effort to sort of do ‘locker room talk,’ to express all kinds of shit and just not even care what anyone thinks.”
Liberals are furious that Stern dared to defend Trump, and they are now threatening to boycott his show. SHARE this story if you SUPPORT Howard Stern AND Donald Trump!
